I am not at all clear on what happened, but xfs_repair is no longer
stuck.  The downside is, it's finding a huge number of problems on the
filesystem.  What are the odds that the fs is actually usable when the
repair completes?  It's hard to imagine a repair that generates ~2GB of
output on stderr could be good news (so far; granted I did use -v).
